I have my own set of pots and pans which I only cook gluten free in them and I wash them by hand separate from anything else plus my cooking utensils.  However I wash my plates, cups, glasses and silverware in the dishwasher along with gluten dishes ect.  Am I asking for trouble using the dishwasher this way? After I wash my pots and pans then I wash the pots and pans that were used for gluten.  Just want to make sure I am safe since I live with gluten eaters and I am the only gluten free person in the house.  Which I keep my food separate and cook separate from gluten food.

I honestly cannot see how if the dishwasher is in good working condition.

 

I have eaten at people's houses who are not celiacs and in restaurants where certainly, the dishes are washed with plates that once held gluteny foods and I have never felt ill from it.

 

Someone else who lives with gluten eaters in their homes may pipe in here and offer their thoughts as well..

I live with gluten and the people who eat it.  We use the same dishes, forks, etc run thru the dishwasher.

I would have to say that it depends on how good your dishwasher is and how  sensitive you are to what levels of gluten.  If you aren't experiencing symptoms, don't worry about it.  If you are experiencing symptoms, try washing all you dishes by hand and see if it makes a difference.

and i think exactly the opposite.  you're talking high speed high temp water, here.  my dishwasher is TERRIBLE and i am sensitive (we are celiacs, aren't we all sensitive to gluten?) and i would eat off of dishes out of a dishwasher hands down any day of the week over dishes washed by hand.  hands down.  any,  day, of.  the. week.  i have friends who eat gluten and hand wash their dishes sometimes.  i don't like to eat off of their dishes but never got sick off of them.  that is my ca-rayy-zy opinion.  at restaurants, when i ever eat at them, i like my wine glass a-steamin' from the high speed high temp dishwasher  ^_^ bwah hahahahaaaaa! :ph34r:

I would go one step further on this and say that you do not need separate pots and pans, depending on what the material is they are made of.  Stainless steel is not porous and should pose no problem for use by either gluten or non-gluten foods, as long as they cleaned well.  Teflon, aluminum and cast iron (uncoated) should be dedicated to gluten free.  This is not a sensitive issue at all.  Most stuff isn't.  It's a cleanliness issue.  I am one of the ultra sensitive ones and have not had any problems with eating from shared plates or cutlery and I've been doing this for a VERY long time. 

 

Your opinion is not ca-rayy-zey, Arlene....... ;)

SHHHH!  Don't let my Hub hear this!  I used it as an excuse to really nice new pans & to keep the boys from burning their eggs & bacon in my nice pans.  :ph34r:

yup, gem, i share my stainless steel with the gluten eaters - we hit it with a scouring pad (s.o.s. or brillo, etc), rinse it and it goes in the dishwasher.  i sometimes even (*gasp*) cook my (gluten-free) pasta first, drain it, and then use the same (stainless steel) pot to cook gluten pasta - that way you only have one pot to wash :)

 

let me add, i am PICKY PICKY PICKY and i will even eat off of dishes at my bff's (mrs. crumbhands) house because she uses the dishwasher.  when we stayed in florida and we had no dishwasher she washed the dishes by hand and i got sick.  the next year i was armed with paper plates and tinfoil.  and ziploks.  i can usually fake anything when i have my 'go-to' kitchen supplies for improvise lolz

My dishwasher doesn't work particularly well.  We have a gluten free household so it isn't an issue, but I do find stuck on food on the dishes sometimes.

 

When I suggested hand washing dishes as a possibility to see if it would make a difference, I meant to hand wash the gluten free dishes separately.

either way should be fine as long as they're clean, right?   it takes me for ever to do the dishes - they are probably already sufficiently clean when i put them into the dishwasher lolz - my husband does the dishes, doesn't even *rinse* everything!  and they turn out just fine.  my secret?  i don't watch him do it  ;)  and when he loads the dishwasher, my job is to put the dishes away after they're clean, so i check everything as i unload it.  if there's anything left stuck to the dishes, back in the sink they go.

 

steph, our dishwasher is the *worst* - it's fairly new and we already replaced the motor!!!  i wish i had the old kenmore TANK that we used to have - when it got to be on it's last legs, it sounded like a freight train was coming through the house LOLZ but it still did a great job :)

I have not read all of the responses , but I do have questions about it only because everyone says If your using old wooden spoons , get rid of them, if your using old wooden cutting boards or plastic ones get rid of them!! I think possibly gluten can stay between the tines of forks. I know sometimes it can leave rice and stuff on bowls and plates. I don't have one but I know people who do and they complain about that kind of stuff happening. Not every piece of dish ware or flat ware comes out spotless ... So I say there can be traces of gluten... Enuf to bother someone?I don't know.  They can be germ free! But heat does not kill Gluten. :)

One more time. Because this is really a non-issue.
I am pretty sure no gluten will be on a plate or a fork if your dishwasher--- or your " washer of the dishes" (in the absence of a machine) does a good job.
Let's give it a rest.
